Mitsuuji and Beauty above the River

Series; A Modern Pictorial Version of the Buddha's Eight-fold Path

Mitsuuji and Beauty above the River - Interesting design from an unusual Kunisada II series featuring modern comparisons with episodes from the life of Buddha. In this scene, Mitsuuji, the Rural Genji, and a beauty pause atop a grassy slope overlooking the river below. He smiles as he gestures with one hand, the beauty looking up as she crouches at his side with a pipe in hand. Boats can be seen on the water and buildings line the opposite shore. A rarely seen Kunisada II series.
